IAN in 2015
The Integration and Application Network has an exciting 2015 ahead. IAN has undergone a staffing expansion, with five new staff based at the Chesapeake Bay Program, a new administrative staff position, and two PhD students beginning in January 2015. A concerted teaching effort by IAN is being launched in 2015, with full semester courses in Science for Environmental Management
(Spring 2015) and Communicating Science Effectively
(Autumn) being offered. In addition to our ongoing Chesapeake Bay and Maryland Coastal Bays
projects, we are looking forward to exciting projects in New York (Long Island Sound report card and New York Harbor School - Billion Oyster Project
(with the National Centre for Sustainable Coastal Management) and Australia (Charles Darwin University and Great Barrier Reef Foundation
). We have a great set of partners that we will be working with this year on a diverse suite of projects.
